2024 VS Visit Days

2024 VS Visit Days_1010x540

On Monday March 4th and Tuesday March 5th, we hosted 17 prospective students (13 in-person and 4 virtually) for Vision Science Visit Days. VS Visit Days is a two-day recruitment event for PhD program applicants, who get the chance to meet current VS students and faculty as they present and discuss new and exciting findings in the fields of ophthalmology, optometry, biology, neuroscience, visual psychophysics, and computer vision.

Sessions included community building, lab tours, lightning talks given by faculty, happy hour, student panel and more. PhD candidates traveled from South Korea, East Coast, Southern California, and Toronto to visit the Herbert Wertheim School of Optometry & Vision Science. The event was organized by Assistant Director of Vision Science & Residency Programs, Alex Marquez, with support from the Admissions and Student Affairs Office (ASAO). We look forward to welcoming the new class of VS students in Fall 2024!
